Introduction

Eve is a UK based company that has built up a strong reputation both there and in Europe as a high-quality mattress in a box provider. They are available to buy either through their own dedicated website or on Amazon although they do not operate any brick and mortar stores in either UK or US. 

The original mattress is made entirely of foam and scores well across a variety of areas. It is rated as a medium-firm mattress, which makes it best suited to various body types as it won’t feel too soft or too firm for most. 

All of their mattresses are produced in the UK, even when purchased from Europe or the US. The foam used is all CertiPUR-US certified, which means they have been independently tested to make sure that no harmful chemicals are present in your mattress.

In a nutshell

What you need to look out for

This mattress is a great choice for those who need targeted pressure relief from their mattress. If you suffer from back and joint pain, the eve mattress will be able to keep your joints supported throughout the night and have you waking up feeling refreshed and relaxed.

It is also a great choice for its advanced motion isolation, making it perfect for couples who share the bed. Thanks to it’s zoned support, you’re unlikely to be woken up by your partner as they move about during the night.

In summary

Overall, our testing team were very impressed with the eve mattress. It received some truly glowing feedback, especially when it came to comfort, pain relief, and back sleeping. This is all down to their unique mattress construction and attention to detail.One area where it didn’t score as highly was when it came to edge support. Just like many memory foam mattresses before it, the eve seems to be lacking in this area. All this really means though, is that couples who plan on sharing their eve mattress should probably opt for a size larger than usual to counteract the lack of edge support.

Hands on review

What's it made from

The eve mattress consists of three foam layers, all working together to provide exceptional comfort and support.

Top Layer

evecomfort layer – This top layer of springy foam helps to keep you in alignment all night long. Their website claims that it is 30 times more breathable than previous models, so also helps to keep you feeling fresh while you sleep.

2nd Layer

Memory layer – This second layer of memory foam is denser and works to provide more support to your body and keep you from sinking too far into the mattress. It still manages to retain a medium softness though while providing this, so avoids feeling too firm.

3rd Layer

Base layer– The base layer is a layer of zoned support that works to relieve pressure points in various sleeping styles. The seven zoned areas make this a good choice for a variety of sleepers as the foam adapts to your body while you sleep, even if you change position.

Mattress Cover

The mattress cover on the eve mattress can be easily unzipped and removed and is machine washable, making it as easy as possible to maintain and care for it. It is made from a moisture-wicking polyester fabric, so is able to keep the mattress underneath relatively dry from things like perspiration and humidity.

Comfort & firmness

Both our testers and reviews from around the web confirm their own claims that the eve mattress is a medium firmness. This makes it a great choice for a variety of sleep styles as it is neither too firm or too soft. It scores highly when it comes to comfort for those who prefer the feel of memory foam as it conforms well to your body throughout the night.

Pain relief and support

Pain-Relief-and-Support-Medium-Firmness

Thanks to the zoned support base layer and the middle layer of denser foam, this is a great choice for pain relief. It effectively manages to keep your body supported and in alignment in various sleep positions, and its ability to conform to your shape means you are cradled and supported while you sleep.

Sleeping position ratings

Both our testers and reviews from around the web confirm their own claims that the eve mattress is a medium firmness. This makes it a great choice for a variety of sleep styles as it is neither too firm or too soft. It scores highly when it comes to comfort for those who prefer the feel of memory foam as it conforms well to your body throughout the night.

Side sleepers

As a side sleeper, you’ll find that the zoned support layer really works in your favor and manages to keep your spine in alignment by adapting to your body and giving you that extra sinkage around your hips, and less around your shoulders.

Sinkage and edge support

Where this mattress fails to live up to its competitors is in edge support. Our testing team was disappointed with the lack of support and security they felt when lying on the edge of this mattress. This could pose a problem for combination sleepers who move around a lot during the night, and even for couples who are sharing a smaller bed.

Heat retention

The eve mattress has included a top layer that is 30 times more breathable than their previous models to try and combat the high levels of heat retention often found with memory foam mattresses. Unfortunately, this layer doesn’t do much to combat this as far as our testers can see. This mattress still runs rather hot during the night so won’t be suitable for those in warmer climates or are usually warm sleepers.

Unboxing

The eve mattress comes delivered in a box and needs to be unpacked and unrolled to allow it to fully expand before usage. There can be some small levels of off-gassing odors with this mattress, but our testers found these to be minimal and in line with other similar brands.

Intimacy

The eve mattress is virtually silent when moving around so can be a great option for couples when they choose to get intimate as you won’t experience any mood-killing squeaks or creaks. It is less springy and responsive than some models though, so if you prefer a bit of bounce in your mattress, you may want to look elsewhere.

Bed frame compatibility

The eve mattress fits all standard UK bed frames, as well as most EU and Ikea bed frames according to their website. As this is a brand that is manufactured in the UK, be sure to double check the measurements before purchasing to ensure it will match up with your existing bed frame.

Is this mattress right for you?

For those of you in a couple where you both favor different sleep styles, the eve mattress can be a great choice to make sure you both feel comfortable and supported through the night. We would recommend buying a slightly larger size than usual though due to the lack of effective edge support.

If you run hot while you sleep, or prefer a mattress with a bouncy feel, then you should look elsewhere for your mattress. The eve mattress is well-constructed but can cause issues for those who need a bit of help when it comes to keeping cool throughout the night.

In conclusion

In conclusion, this UK-based mattress is a great choice for many sleepers. The foam construction does an exceptional job of relieving back and joint pain for many sleepers and is not uncomfortable for any sleeping position.

The price range and 10-year warranty also make this a good choice for those sticking to a budget who still want to ensure they are purchasing a high-quality and supportive mattress.
